We deem it important to provide continuous professional support to you also in the current pandemic situation. Conditions negatively effecting undertakings, economic slowdowns or declines always highlight the role of state-backed financial institutions, such as that of EXIM. This countercyclical role - even in the case of a longer-lasting pandemic situation - is further strengthening.
Based on our 25-year export credit, financing and insurance expertise and our in- depth knowledge of international markets, we would like to assure you of the unchanged stability of our operation and partnership.
Already upon the declaration of the epidemiological emergency, the funding experts of EXIM – in close co-operation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade – started to identify and elaborate the mitigating measures and programmes whereby we can help Hungarian enterprises return to their foreign markets immediately after the removal of the restrictions.
Furthermore, we inform you that under Government Decree of 18 March 2020 on immediate measures necessary for alleviating the effects of the coronavirus pandemic on the national economy, the Hungarian government provides for the extension of the capital, interest and fee payment obligations of debtors falling within the scope of the Decree arising from credit, loan or financial lease contracts existing at 24:00 on 18 March 2020 until 31 December 2020 (payment moratorium). The government also stipulates that any contract expiring within the period of the state of danger shall be extended until 31 December 2020.
Thus, we will continue our work in view of the Governmental Decree aimed at alleviating the effects of the pandemic on the total Hungarian economy and we will handle the implementation of the moratorium imposed on contracts falling under the scope of the Decree in the case of all our customers concerned. Following the official publication of additional legislation laying down the detailed rules of the provisions of the Government Decree, we will provide you with detailed information. Until then we would like to ask you for your kind patience.
It is important to emphasize that we are entirely at your disposal also in the present situation in case of fund requests or liquidity difficulties since the finance solutions of EXIM are also suitable for addressing the non-marketable risks.
Please contact us if you have any questions or requests.
